Graduate Fellows at the Center

C21 employs three part-time graduate fellows (doctoral candidates) whose studies align with our interests in critical, digital, and public humanities. Employment includes salary plus tuition remission. A C21 graduate fellowship offers the opportunity to meet visiting scholars and attend C21 events, and to work with technologies that will strengthen our web presence.

The Call for C21 Graduate Fellows is currently closed. Please check back in spring 2020 for the next call. (For general details, review our closed call for 2019-20 Call for Graduate Fellows.)

Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference

The Center is co-sponsor of the annual Midwest Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference, a forum that gives graduate students valuable experience in presenting their work publicly and in mastering the give and take of academic question and answer sessions. Further information about the conference can be found on themigc.com.
